Cole’s 2014 Forest Hills Drive LP was released in December 2014. The project sparked the popular “J. Cole Went Platinum With No Features” meme when it became his first album to be certified platinum by the RIAA.
The Dreamville founder’s first two studio releases, Cole World: The Sideline Story and Born Sinner, didn’t earn their platinum certifications until after 2014 Forest Hills Drive achieved the feat.
As of May 2019, every Cole solo album has been certified platinum by the RIAA.
